"Beyond tonight's game, I don't know what our pitching will be for the rest of the Ogden series and the following set against Salt Lake City," pointed out the Cubs' pilot. The Cubs have been bolstered by the addition of one catcher and two more pitchers. Arriving on the scene is catcher Dale Ehlers, who played hereln!966. The 23-year-old backstop is fresh from Marine Corps reserve duty. "I'm ready to play though," said E hlers, "and maybe this club will bear down like we did last year."
